If it was me buying this safe and finding the money, I would keep it. This is based on the fact that once the purchase was made, the item no matter what the item is and the contents now belong to me. I actually know someone who would have given ALL the money back!!! Even if he did rightfully own the money once purchased, he would have given ALL the cash back ! There is lawful and then there is righteous. :blush:

Nobody simply "forgets" about money they put in a safe. The seller & buyer alike may be unwittingly involved with stolen property. Hopefully the buyer won't spend it all because he'll probably be getting a notice from the police or an attorney that he's got to give it back to the person it was stolen from. Won't surprise me if the seller gets into a bit of trouble..

Dang... The best thing I ever found was a soviet era Degtyaryov Machine Gun whilst being deployed in Iraq the first time in a "tool" shed. Unfortunately I wasn't able to keep it. :hmm:

It would be a dilemma for me.  I'd feel like I should give some of the money back but I'm not sure I'd do it :unsure2:

Coolest thing I ever found was a Japanese Officer's sword that was a WWII trophy for some vet who had previously lived in a house we were renting.  I was 5 and had gone exploring in the nooks and crannies of a closet.  Can you imagine the excitement? :w00t:

*snip* if a safe is locked its usually a good indication theres somthing inside of it,if there was dimonds in a envolope u wouldnt hear them in there ether..furthermore he ruins any chance of getting it back i would have straight away said it was my life savings and called the police therefore getting the money back

i belive if u find over 5k in cash it must be handed in to the police anyway because it needs to be decleared and taxed as well as finding the rightful owner its not as easy as just saying u found it

Labrecque doesn't quite see it that way.
"That's a chunk of change, you know.  That's life-altering money," he said.  "I mean, if I was in that situation and I found that kind of money and I bought it from someone, I'd say, 'Here, man, I found this money.  I'll give you half of it.'"

Of course you would...

:innocent:

   A contentious email chain between Labrecque and the buyer ensued. The regretful Labrecque had asked for a cut of the cash, but the buyer declined, citing Labrecque's selling policy which states, "What you see is what you get, no returns, and no money back."                    

He shot himself in the foot with that one  lol

I also laughed at him saying he would have given him half of the cash.. .Yea sure you would !

I wouldn't tell anyone. I would put it away someplace safe and slowly deposit it into my bank account.  :yes:
